Why Should Enterprise IdP Operators Care About Federation & Research?

Time 10/16/18 01:40PM-03:30PM

Room Pacifica Ballroom 2/3

Session Abstract

The campus identity provider has a lot to think about. It seems like every division within the university wants to deploy something to the cloud, with the associated issues of authenticating and authorizing users. Sometimes a request from a faculty or researcher to access this or that shared resource (via federation) never makes it to the top of the pile. As an IdP operator, why should you care? What steps could you take to make things easier for your faculty to access shared resources? How do other campuses deal with these issues? We’ll explore the reasons for paying attention to these issues and how you might go about making it easier on yourself and your faculty.
